I Love My Life ... If Only I Could Afford It...

I do, you know. I really do. 

My life is pretty Cadillac.

 I have this amazing man - who totally "gets" me. I have this huge house, that I really do love and these crazy assed kids that say and do the damnedest things. I look around and realize if I could just afford the lifestyle that I have - things would be sweet ... for a minute, at the very least.

So ... this means I must find a way to make my business idea produce fruit. Right? It's not a bad idea. I just need to market it properly. As it happens, I have a mandatory class tomorrow for "core business training" that is all about marketing. 

I hate marketing.

Every position I have held since the bank has tried - with all its might - to squeeze marketing genius out of me. It isn't really there. I have had some decent ideas, but this really isn't my forte. 

I built my website, designed my business cards and have been smashing my head against my brochures all this past week. I feel like I have been ridden hard and put away wet. Hubs keeps saying that he doesn't understand why I hate it so much - because I am so good at it ... but that is only because he is really very bad at it. He's not a design-y type. He is REALLY good at technical stuff. Not that he can teach me a damned thing ... I am too tightly wound. He can't teach me ... and much of the time doesn't try. Yet another reason why I love him so ... he never imposes his way on my. Not ever.

How lucky am I?

Hopefully, I will come home bursting with better ideas for my marketing plan tomorrow. I need to make this work somehow. Do you think a strong enough desire will make it happen? I have my first job next week. I'm rather excited about that. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

Wish me luck! Or better yet, cash ... yeah - wish me cash :)

Hugs all ...
